Begin with 5 players at one end of the court. Pass and go behind (weave) the person shooting the lay-up and the person who passed the ball to shooter immediately sprint to cover the defensive basket. The closest person to the rebound takes the ball out of the basket and passes to nearest offensive person to initiate a 3 on 2 situation. At the other end of the court play continues until the two defenders secure the ball via rebound/steal or the offense scores.
10 or more
Bad passes, or dropped passes leading to a sloppy weave. Have players hustle back and start drill over. This is a good lead drill after warm-ups and stretching
Rebounder immediately takes the ball out of the basket and starts upcourt for a quicker transition. Shooter and rebounder must inbound versus other three players in a full court situation.
